Spokesman for Yemen's Houthi movement, Yahya Sarea says they had downed a US-made drone near the Saudi border, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Sarea claimed that the ScanEagle was shot down as it flew over Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border region of Najran, gathering intelligence.

The reported downing comes a few weeks after the Houthi militia wrote in a tweet cited by Reuters that their “air defence systems had intercepted an F-15 fighter jet belonging to the countries of aggression in Saada province."

The Houthis did not clarify which coalition country the plane belonged to.
